"Science Fiction" means—to us—everything found in the science fiction section of a bookstore, or at a science fiction convention, or amongst the winners of the Hugo awards given by the World Science Fiction Society. This includes the genres of science fiction (or sci-fi), fantasy, slipstream, alternative history, and even stories with lighter speculative elements. We hope you enjoy the broad range that SF has to offer.

Caroline M. Yoachim's series of food-based fairy tales.

The best pastry chefs in the Milky Way meet once every two hundred years at the Intergalactic Pastry Competition, sponsored by FTL Travel. We prepare desserts and candy showpieces in hopes of impressing the judges, and I'm among the favorites to win. My main competition is a currently-female humanoid named Tela from Kesenia-186f. She's three thousand years old and started working as a pastry chef several centuries before I was born. The themes of the competition are space and time, and the prize is a ticket out of our slowly dying universe, provided by FTL Travel.

Bread Babies Anna could make a baby out of bread, well enough to fool the fey. After forty years of practice, she could bake bread babies practically in her sleep. Over the years she'd made rye babies and wheat babies and golden-crusted sourdoughs. She had a knack for getting the bread to rise just right--you wanted a baby that was plump and appealing, but not bloated beyond recognition.
